Nail Art time! I saw this technique on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. It was surprisingly easy. I figured it would be great for Valentines Day.
It is called a 'Drag Marble' technique. Here is the link to the site I used http://mysimplelittlepleasures.blogspot.ca/2011/02/notd-valentines-hearts-red-white-drag.html. She gives clear and detailed instructions, making it fairly easy to recreate. The jest of it is you use a fair thinkish coat of base coat (I used Tip Your Hat from China Glaze), than while it is still wet you use a dotting tool to place dots of white(Snow from China Glaze). Than while it is still wet you drag a tooth pick through the dots creating the hearts.
I only did one coat of the red so I am hoping that it will last the week, I will let you know next week how it does.
I was pleasantly surprised on how well the Lancome polish lasted this past week. Only minor tip wear and that had actually happened fairly early in the week, I want to say around Wednesday? And it really did not go any further for the rest of the week. I have not been putting another coat of top coat on since the first week of my nail series, I realized that by my doing that we wouldn't get a good feel on how it would perform. The only thing I am missing is that my nails tend to get slightly dull by about mid week. I may try a Mac polish for next week.
